We have all seen the survival shows on TV. Some of them are entertaining like man woman wild while others are actually pretty educational.
With the rise in popularity for everything survival Discovery Channel has come out with a very controversial show called Naked and Afraid.
The title of the show sounds like a bad horror movie with its eye grabbing words that play with the natural sexual curiosity of humans.
No this isn’t an “adult” movie and no it isn’t a horror movie. This is the new generation of survival shows.
This survival show places two people of opposite gender in a remote location. They are left with no food, no supplies and no clothing.
Yes you heard me right they are left in a foreign land naked. They are tasked with surviving for 21 days together. They have to find shelter, food, water and defend themselves from the wildlife all while in the buff.
I admit the at first my curiosity was piqued with watching two strangers struggle with the taboo nature of nudity all the while trying to survive. After further reflection I started to wonder if the nudity was really adding anything beneficial to the show.
I mean is leaving them naked really going to teach the viewer anything truly important when it comes to survival or is it just a way to spark interest?
Sure when we are left without clothing we feel more vulnerable and psychologically that can play tricks with your mind and sure survival is 90% mental but is that what they were really thinking?
I am still up in the air as to whether or not naked and afraid is a real hardcore survival show or just the flavor of the month. I know many people are probably offended by the show and others maybe not. I however am still on the fence.
What do you think? Is Naked and Afraid truly a worthy survival show or just a flash in the pan PR joke?
Many articles abound about storing maps, documents, books, instruction manuals, military documents, cookbooks, how to books, and a plethora of other books for SHTF or WROL scenarios. The problem is, well, that’s a lot of stuff to be toting around!
It also is disposable and degradable, it can be damaged, lost or destroyed. It also can be a burden to cart around in an emergency situation where you may need to transport your critical items, pets or people first, above the need for your documents.
This is where using a portable ebook reader like the Nook comes in! I recently purchased a new Nook for each member of the family. There are simply awesome items for SHTF manuals, maps – really any document that would normally be in hard copy format, or as a file on my laptop of desktop computer.
Advantages of Using Nook for SHTF:
The Barnes & Noble Nook ebook reader is the solution for me and my family for WROL or SHTF situations, emergency preparedness and compact portability. In the event of having my laptop fried, the Nook can be safely stashed in an EM shielded container easily since it’s so small. In addition, I use my laptop everyday and cannot be shielded easily.
The Nook easily stashes away in my EM shielded bag, along with my memory card library. I even have backup mem cards and USB sticks to store my critical info.
Note: Make sure to find out if your Nook model uses SD cards or micro SD cards as well as the maximum GB rating your Nook model can use (most are max 32GB for each mem card)
Another great bonus is the low power consumption of the Nooks. Using digital ink technology, the power usage is extremely low as the tech uses ink technology that sticks the ink to the screen and then stays there without the use of power, until the page is turned.
This is unlike LCD technology of course, which sucks up much more power while you are reading.
The advantages are pretty large to store your SHTF documents with as opposed to a hard drive and computer, or paper based libraries. For me it’s a no brainer – the Nook for emergencies and your SHTF library! Search for the Nook and Best Pricing from Amazon…
